DIY Holiday Decor - Glittered Pinecones


Nature inspired decor can be found all over my home, and I’m sure many of you agree that organic elements make interiors feel extra warm and inviting. Mother Nature does things so beautifully, there’s often no need to compete with her.
But sometimes? Sometimes your pinecones need glitter. LOTS of glitter.
Place them on your mantel, in your tree, in wreaths… heck, what can’t you do with your pinecones?

Elmer’s spray adhesive works well for this project. Place the pinecones inside a cardboard box and spray from all angles. Wearing latex gloves will be helpful - they get super sticky.

I used two types of glitter for two different looks.  And oh how I’m in love with the microbead glitter.  But the other stuff wasn’t too shabby either.  You really can’t go wrong, it’s glitter!

Put the pinecone in a plastic ziploc bag filled with glitter.  Shake it a bunch so the glitter gets into all the crevices.

    I painted the pine cones before putting the glitter on. Gives it a totally different look. Either way is nice, just different.
